Great Watch, one of my favorite parts:

Monster: "Is that your girlfriend?"
Guy: "Yeah, Why?"
Monster: "Nothing really, I am sure she has a GREAT personality" ...sound continues of monster gnawing on Guy's arm.

Passive Aggressive Monsters, they are a thing! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! :P

"ENVOY is a science fiction, action adventure, short film to be used as a proof of concept for a larger full-length motion picture. A love-letter to many of the classic action-adventure and science fiction films of the ’80s & ’90s, Envoy is a passion-project created by Director DAVID WEINSTEIN and Visual Effects Supervisor ADAM COGGIN."

Watching this after having a look, I was hooked. This little short really helped pull at the emotion strings, with a pleasant reward towards the end. Standing up for what is right is often times not rewarded with anything more but knowing deep down that you did the right thing, yet when a short like this happens you really feel happy for the young one.

Hopefully this will amount to something more, I'll be watching!

I often watch "Socially Accurate" historical reflections of current "ideals" and realize how my views are so foreign if not "old-fashioned". I wonder how many of those who follow along with me know which of these Era's I would most align my interests to? Speaking purely physical of course despite the fact that I often require social connection with an individual before finding any physical appeal. ;-)

If only all youth would celebrate this kind of mentality. Then and only then would I think we could start moving to a world of true equality.

Ubuntu my friend, Ubuntu! :D

Hello everyone! First time poster here and a moderate to occassional frequenter of various MU*'s. Joined the community as I've been curious to see what other types of MU*'s are out there, and to learn what TinyMUX and similar MUSH Varients are like. The idea of a purely RP server intrigue's me and I'd love to learn more.

To that end, hello!

Thanks everyone for the prompt replies already!

@ +Auroness Smythe: I have been looking at DikuMUDS for a while and they seem to be among the easiest to implement "out of the box" as it were, and possibly one of the easiest methods of using a d20 like hack-n-slash MUD with possible RP elements.

+Jeremy Stratton: Text heavy games definitely have their place, though as Rick mentioned I would wager it would depend on the importance of combat and room-to-room fluidity.

@ +Rick Parker: From what I have read up on other forums and various "Homebrew" MUD's many people encourage the use of already generated Combat games rather than go with the RP side and add combat as an afterthought. An ambitious side of me wants to use a system like Evennia (evennia.com) to learn basic Python elements given it's fairly robust documentation and community support while adding my own modules for a combat system. We will have to see though, as I have programmed in the past it just has been ages working on it.

Though given my experience has mostly been with DIKU varients and not MUSH/MUX's, I want to see what it is that really drives "pure" RP systems, as it seems fairly close to what one would expect from a true tabletop system that requires a GM (which I am trying to avoid).

It is work like that that inspires me to learn how to paint miniatures! I have a plethora of X-Wing ships, and if I applied myself I can only imagine what creative work I could come up with!

Though I gotta say, when I saw this, +Jon Ellis was among the first I thought about! You gotta check this out!

Here are the two pictures we had professionally done of our bundle of joy. I have thankfully been able to get some more sleep and am starting to get acclimated to being a father.

I am pleased to find out my son enjoys my banter SO much that he'll be soundly asleep in my football hold while I move around the house talking to him about the different things he gets to look forward too.

Our animals have so far welcomed him into our home without any problems and for that I am overjoyed. +Katie Lorando and I have made one cute baby!

I have only a brief moment to share, but it is a moment that will change my life Forever that I must share.

On January 26th, 2015 at 17:58 Eastern Standard Time, +Katie Lorando and myself were blessed to have our son Dieghan Kristofer Lorando born. Coming in at 6 lbs 6.2 oz and 19.5 inches long, our son is an absolute joy to have been able to share with the world.

As I try to recoup and get our home ready while my wife stays with family and friends back in the Hospital, we hope to share many photos with the world of the joyous occasion. Thank you all to everyone who has helped support us and send us words of comfort, cheer, and uplifting encouragement through both the good and the bad.

I can not say it enough, but I am overwhelmed with Joy, Thanks, and a renewed sense of purpose in life. Here is to celebrating a new chapter in our lives and I thank any and all who join in our journey!

It was a sad thing to see Club Nintendo close, though it was somewhat expected. The rewards had become increasingly scarce and not worth the points one would expect they spent money to get. Additionally, the "Elite" status rewards I have yet to see despite efforts on my part to get anything from Nintendo due to back order problems.

Either way, I am curious to see what Nintendo has to share with us next! Till then, I'll be enjoying some classic Zelda!

Introduction
Creator of Worlds, Explorer of the Digital Universe, and General Nerd in all things computers, gaming, and the world of Open Source. I am very much a can-do and go-getter, and as such even if I don't know something, I am always eager to explore the WWW and fish out the answers!

I have at least 6 years of experience as both an End User and Novice Admin of various Linux Operating Systems, and am hoping to branch out and become more experienced with both the programming side and admin side of the OS.

My ultimate hope is to utilize technology in order to enhance and bolster a cooperative environment where creative minds can collaborate and share ideas without hindering it by means of financial limitations. Anything that helps further that cause and helps me improve myself in the process is something I seek on a daily basis.

Spent a night here with my wife for a birthday getaway from home and was exactly what we were looking for. The King Bed Hot Tub Suite we stayed in had all the amenities one could ever ask for and was isolated enough to where only one wall had a neighbor. It was a relaxing stay, with easy access to internet, the highway, and a pleasant breakfast. Although the views from the windows weren't all that great (we faced the neighboring hotel which took up much of the view space) we would most certainly go there again in the future!

Took my wife here for an early birthday present and it was amazing! The staff was knowledgeable and the art diverse with a mix of both well-known and eclectic artists. Art from around the world could be found here with fascinating details and provoking arrangements made for an intellectual and engaging experience. We were able to get through most of the building in a span of 3 hours with plenty more to do that we both want to participate in in future visits. Highly Recommended!
